"When I developed Metaphor in 2012 I had an inkling of the direction that I wanted to take, everyday the picture gets clearer. Whenever a client tells me how happy he is to come home it comes into focus a little. more As I watch each project come together from concept to completion, the thrill of what we do grows.
We love what we do and we believe in using our authority as designers to make choices that are both economically and environmentally beneficial. Our interiors should be gorgeous and comfortable as well as practical and sustainable.
In South Africa we are blessed with an abundance local materials as well as a wealth of highly experienced craftsman. We encourage clients to let us help them use these resources instead of heading out for mass produced retail imports. This does not only result in unique and special pieces with longevity, it also improves social upliftment by assisting small businesses with job creation.
